Fontanaro has a new friendship...with Trasimeno Music Festival

Fontanaro has a new friendship: the Trasimeno Music Festival 2011.

The 2011 edition will take place from the 2nd to the 8th of July.

As preview, If you like, have a look on
We can already book for you in advance even if tickets will be officially available only from May.

The Trasimeno Music Festival Association was formed by the happy fruition of
two beautiful but originally distant things: on one side the
world-renowned Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt, and on the other, the
Umbrian town of Magione, on the shores of Lake Trasimeno. When Angela,
regarded as one of the greatest living interpreters of the music of J.S.
Bach, first discovered this area of great natural beauty, she fell in love
with it immediately. Then, with her unique blend of charm and passion, she
decided to bring her music to the region in the form of an annual music
festival. For a week each summer, she presents concerts in the magical
atmosphere of the Castle of the Knights of Malta in Magione using
international artists of the highest level. To accomplish this, and thanks
to the interest and passion of local friends and collaborators, the
Trasimeno Music Festival Association was formed.

This summer festival, which has grown to also include concerts in Perugia
and Gubbio, will be presented for the seventh time in 2011.

With this happy union between local and international elements, the life of
the Association is diverging into a more widespread activity, with
lecture-demonstrations held in schools, discussions with authors who write
about music in their work, masterclasses with young pianists, and Friends
Associations being formed around the world - a reflection of the worldwide
attention that characterizes both Angela Hewitt and the festival.

On this website, to which we welcome you, you may find all the information
on the initiatives of the Trasimeno Music Festival Association. We look
forward to welcoming you to a concert or another event with Angela Hewitt.
